SC fixes April 23 for final hearing of Income Tax case against Sonia, Rahul

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday said it will hear from April 23 the final arguments on an appeal filed by Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia against the Delhi high court order allowing re-assessment of their Income Tax for 2011-12 in connection with the National Herald case.

The Gandhis sought adjournment of the hearing which was opposed by the Income Tax Department (ITD) saying the issue requires detailed hearing.

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta said it is listing the matter for final disposal on April 23. (AGENCIES)
